A yoga-focused trekking in the magnificent Himalayas, connecting your body and soul
October 8 – October 21 2018
Experience the unique combination of yoga and hiking in the Himalayas. Discover the spiritual side of Nepal and explore the most beautiful and fascinating landscape, allowing yourself to connect with nature. It will open your heart and broaden your mind.
The trekking will take you through traditional Nepalese villages and the wild scenery of the Himalayas around Annapurna Base Camp, one of the most wonderful mountain ranges in the world. You will be immersed into the rich culture and experience the extremes of the Annapurna region, even having the chance to come face to face with the country’s wildlife. All of this will allow you to live in the moment with all its beauty.
Your days will start with an energizing yoga class and in the evening we will conclude with a further calming practice, allowing yourself to connect your body and mind during the adventure.The yoga classes vary from gentle hatha asana, energizing vinyasa sequences, and balancing yin-yang yoga to relaxing meditations and yoga nidra. These yoga practices are accessible for all levels, although some basic experience is helpful. The classes will be tuned to the needs of the group, and adjusted to your individual needs during the trek.
This experience can be purifying, healing and mind-broadening. Listen to your heart and take the time to grow closer to your true self amidst the delightful and powerful surroundings of the mountains.
